Description: A computer program has been developed at West Virginia University for use in metes and bounds surveying. Stations, slope distances, slope angles, and bearings are primary information needed for this program. Other information needed may include magnetic deviation, acceptable closure error, desired map scale, and title designation. SURBAL prints out latitudes and departures, adjusted bearings and line lengths, closure error, acreage, and a plotting of the survey to any selected scale, all at a fraction of the costs for manual methods.
